As Ford Authority reported back in March, the 2022 Ford Super Duty will receive a host of updates including an available 12-inch center touch screen similar to the one in the 2021 Ford F-150, a new Lariat Sport Appearance Package, and new interior and exterior colors. Ford Authority also exclusively reported that the 2022 Super Duty will lose its underhood service light, that 2022 King Ranch and Platinum trims will come standard with four-wheel-drive, and that 2022 Ford F-250 buyers will be able to opt for the 3.55-geared electronic-locking rear axle without also having to pair it with a towing package. Now, Ford Authority has even more exclusive 2022 Ford Super Duty King Ranch news to share pertaining to the truck’s standard wheel selection.
For the 2021 model year, the Super Duty King Ranch came standard with 18-inch bright machined cast-aluminum wheels with magnetic-painted pockets, bright hub covers, and center ornaments. This applied to both F-250 and F-350 models with single-rear-wheel (SRW) configurations, but not dual-rear-wheel (DRW) configurations, which came standard with a different wheel design.
2022 Ford Super Duty King Ranch F-250 and F-350 SRW models will now come equipped with standard 20-inch bright machined cast-aluminum wheels. However, those that want 18-inch wheels can still get them on the 2022 Super Duty if they opt for the Tremor Off-Road Package, which comes standard with 18-inch gloss black-painted aluminum wheels.
As Ford Authority reported last month, 2022 Ford Super Duty production is currently scheduled to begin at the Ford Kentucky Truck Plant on July 9th, 2021, and at the Ford Ohio Assembly Plant on July 22th, 2021.
However, it’s worthing noting that these dates may very well change as a result of the ongoing semiconductor chip shortage. Among many other Blue Oval models, 2021 Super Duty production has been severely impacted by the shortage, leading Ford to stash thousands of unfinished pickups near the Kentucky Truck Plant in recent weeks.
